The Rule of Three—New Game

I enjoy these game threads and would love to see more people participate. To that end, I propose we start a new game.

I call it, the Rule of Three. I name a well known skater and the next three posters all name one thing associated with that skater, whether it be serious (a jump they are known for, a notable achievement, or an iconic program), or less than serious (a fun fact, notorious costume fail, etc) The person who contributes the third item gets to name the next skater to continue the game.

Example: I say Nathan Chen. Possible responses might well include: multiple quads/Yale/“Caravan” SP/coaching via Skype/untucked shirt...you get the idea. Extra points are awarded for humor.

OK, shall we start? As I’m in the US, all such threads are obligated to start with:

Michelle Kwan

The first thing I think of: Dave Lease’s tagline on The Skating Lesson, hold an edge and look sexy (inspired by Paul Wylie)

5-times consecutive US champion, mixed heritage, arabian pulls (tbh I wasn't born when she was active so I had to watch some videos, SBS split jumps need to be a thing again)

The game has started with Michelle Kwan, and guess who looked up to her and succeeded her title? ;)

Please accept the honor of nominating Queen Yuna, and the game will continue with her. Nice to have you aboard, IChat!

Okay, I am going to be the Rules Police. Here's the way Seven Sisters originally planned it to go. If we try it, then maybe we can determine if it helps the intention of getting more folks in here to play the games with us. A worthy goal. :)

I call it, the Rule of Three. I name a well known skater and the next three posters all name one thing associated with that skater, whether it be serious (a jump they are known for, a notable achievement, or an iconic program), or less than serious (a fun fact, notorious costume fail, etc) The person who contributes the third item gets to name the next skater to continue the game.


So, for Robin Cousins:

jumped the longest axel jump (Guinness Book of Records)
